Hello brides to be!
My poor fiance is suffering a bad case of vanishing groomsmen. Our destination wedding is at the end of March and 2 out of 3 groomsmen just told him they can no longer afford to come. He's devastated and is starting to get really down about the whole thing. I am the one who pushed for the destination so I am feeling somewhat responsible that 2 of his best friends won't be there. He hasn't seen these guys in over a year and I know how excited he was to spend some time with them.
This is a two part question:
1. Any idea on how to get him excited about the wedding again?
2. Would it rude if he asked 2 of his other friends who are already coming to the wedding to stand in the wedding party? We don't want them to feel like stand ins.
